DESCRIPTION

John Dempsey, Flint, Michigan, will exhibit recent large-scale paintings and smaller, laser-etched photos in his latest show being there at ARC Gallery. Dempsey paints a variety of architectural and environmental spaces together into complete compositions that allow for comparison. Public, religious, governmental, work, and natural environments are brought together and formed into a variety of designs for the viewer to experience these many spaces at once. Dempsey's painted spaces provide a perspective on our multiple perspectives. As we move through and negotiate many different environments as we work, worship, play, and negotiate our lives, these works offer an opportunity to examine that actuality. Artists' opening reception is Friday, May 31, 6pm–9pm. Gallery phone: 773.252.2232.
